Charles Lang Freer's letters to Frank Hecker during foreign travels, 1899-1903
About the Project
Mystic visions on a storm tossed ship; luxurious respite on a Mediterranean island, and James McNeill Whistler's final days. Between 1899 and 1903, Charles Lang Freer took numerous trips to Europe, to develop his art collection, to spend time at his villa on Capri, and to meet with his most admired artist, J. M. Whistler. This is the second installment of Freer's overseas travels, as related through the numerous letters to his friend and business partner Frank Hecker.
